    Hi,

    I've tried something different. Are these improved and worth uploading?

    Thanks
    Don't think I've seen the first before, so can't really say if it's 'improved'.

    Both images are soft in spots, and somewhat dark. Both would also benefit at being uploaded at a lower resolution to hide such flaws.

    Thought so too. Pity, it's not better quality as it could have been a great one.

    Cheers

    In this image, I've tried to recover the sharpness as there are sections that were slightly out of focus or soft. I'd like to see what you think of the image.

    Borderline for me. Indeed soft toward the edges, but not terribly so. Might have a chance as-is, but not necessarily a great one.

    That's interesting, I didn't use much NR, but there was a lot of rain in the background, which I think in combination might account for its softness. Thanks guys, and especially Pam, for that pointer

    Rain is a non-factor in this image, imho. I think Pam was referring to the background, which is indeed lacking any fine detail, often the after effect of too much NR.

    I worked on this image which I took whilst it was raining. I wanted to check if it is acceptable.

    Exposure is fine, but horizon is off, and borderline contrast.

    Looks somewhat dark and soft. Did you use noise reduction? It looks soft and somewhat smeared out, could be an effect of too much noise reduction.

    I'll see if there are any tweaks I can make. Would you suggest entering a comment for the screener?
    Wouldn't hurt, but comments from photographer are just one factor and might not be the deciding one.

    Areas of the sky directly around the aircraft are brighter than the rest of the sky. Could just be (un)fortunate placement in that it's actually a natural effect, but that's typically what it will look like when a little too much s/h, clarity, etc.. Even looking at it again, I'm not 100% sure which is the case here, so I'd give you the benefit of the doubt, but when prescreening I try to list all of the potential issues just to be safe.
